Tasmanian whisky to be showcased in Kyoto::

Tasmanian whisky producers will be promoted on the world stage at the prestigious Whisky and Craft Beer Showcase, to be held in Kyoto, on Sunday 25 August 2019.

Sullivans Cove Distillery, Lark Distillery (Australian Whisky Holdings), Belgrove Distillery, and Old Kempton Distillery have been invited to represent Tasmania at what is the largest whisky showcase in Japan.

Belgrove Distillery’s involvement is a result of their participation in the Government’s Trade and Investment Mission to Japan earlier this year.

Asia is the destination for more than 80 per cent of our international exports, and participation at this prestigious event is an important opportunity for our whisky producers to position themselves in this key market.

Our participation at the Whisky and Craft Beer Showcase follows a successful Tasmanian Whisky Week, which highlighted the diversity and quality of whisky producers from across our state.

Underpinned by the Government’s $4.4 million Trade Strategy, we are focussed on helping our exporters to be globally competitive, expand their presence in markets around the world, attract more investment and create more local jobs.
